'This expanded edition builds on Margaret's approach to teaching and learning, making us think how we can best include gifted and talented children in our early years settings. By providing opportunities for young children to learn from each other and from their communities and families, gifted and talented young learners can be appropriately challenged and recognised within an inclusive setting'
